First a quick word about Valentine's Day: Over the next couple of weeks you'll be seeing a lot of V-day activities over here on Counting Coconuts. But, I must admit, I'm not really a Valentine's kind of girl - the cards, the forced "I love you's"... it's all so contrived. Paul and I have never needed a holiday to show or tell how much we love one another. Little notes, flowers, hugs and kisses - there's so much you can (and should!) do all year round. However, I do quite like all the pink, red and CHOCOLATE that accompanies this holiday, so that's where my inspiration is coming from. :)
Valentine's Sensory Tub
I had several ideas in mind for this tub, but ultimately I decided on pink wool for the "base"; it has such a nice feel to it. I always try to find things that have varying textures and there's quite a range in this month's tub. Also, James really likes to "collect" things so I included several sets of objects for him to gather.
In the tub:
In the tub:
- Heart shaped beads, stickers, foam cut-outs, and erasers
- Plastic crystals
- A little box with heart shaped "gems" in it
- A BIG pink pom and several smaller ones
- A pipe cleaner shaped into... what else? A heart!
This cocoa scented playdough smells di-vine! I guarantee you James will at least try to take a nibble of this. Thank goodness it's homemade with safe products!
